While many consider neutrals the death of their wardrobe, mine is sustained by these basic tones and shades. It allows me to create a polished look with ease by mixing and matching almost anything and everything that I own. The outfit possibilities become endless and somewhat seasonless. This utilitarian jacket gives the look a casual edge – great for weekends, but the wool cropped trousers make it 9-5 workplace appropriate. Adding the sheen of a silk tank underneath creates a textural difference that gives the outfit dimension. Mixing fabrics and textures is a great way to invigorate the standard “neutral” toned outfit. A metallic shoe finishes off the outfit and rounds out the textural spectrum. Sometimes my closet is like my own craft corner – martha stewart who?
